This has to be Perisher Valley's best kept secret. The team at Barrakee are awesome. Les, Rick and Terry are wonderful hosts, providing great hospitality and service...and Peter's food is definitely the best on the mountain. A lovely lodge with comfortable, spacious accommodation. We'll definitely be back. Thanks for a wonderful stay.
